Shred Hate is a multi-faceted bullying prevention program from ESPN, MLB and X Games that seeks to eliminate bullying by encouraging kids to choose kindness.
As part of the program, No Bully, a San Francisco-based nonprofit that trains and gives schools the tools to activate student compassion as a method for eradicating bullying and cyberbullying, provides innovative, anti-bullying curriculum and works directly with local school districts and cooperating schools.
The underlying themes of the program are an extension of existing anti-harassment policies and inclusion efforts that MLB applies to our clubhouses, ballparks and front offices.
